Cthulhu Mythos Biographies

The following fictitious biographies showcase the most important characters in H.P. Lovecraft's story cycle the Cthulhu Mythos.


  • Name. The name of the character appears first.
  • Birth/Death. The date of the character's birth and death (if known) appears in parenthesis below the character's name. Ambivalent dates are denoted by a question mark. (Note: ca. is the abbreviation for "circa".)
  • Description. A brief description of the character follows next.
  • References. Finally, the stories in which the character makes a significant appearance or otherwise receives important mention appear below the description. A simple two-letter code is used—the key to the codes is found here. If a code appears in bold, this means that the story introduces the character.
